Heart It Is, Not A Brick Or Stone

Heart it is, not a brick or stone
Why shouldn't it feel the pain?
Let none tyrannize this heart
Or I shall cry again and again

دل ہی تو ہے نہ سنگ وخشت درد سے بھر نہ آۓ کیوں!
دل ہی تو ہے نہ سنگ وخشت درد سے بھر نہ آۓ کیوں روئیں ہم ہزار بار کوئی ہمیں ستاۓ کیوں

Love the universe - great sufi thoughts
Love is laden with noble thoughts Yet what remains is the carnal shame beautiful!
what is the need to cry, good one.
Ghalib weaves a tapestry of magic with his words!
Wisdom set in poetic form- he intrigues me. I do believe I will read more by him.
So important sayings to remember by all.....

Dil Hi To Hai Na Sang-o-Khist Dard Se Bhar Na Aaye Kyon? Royenge Hum Hazaar Baar Koyee Hamein Sataye Kyon? Dair Nahin, Haram Nahin, Dar Nahin, Aastan Nahin Baithe Hain Reh-Guzar Pe Hum Gair Hamein Uthaye Kyon? Jab Veh Jamaal-e-Dilfaroze Surte-Mehre Neem-Roze Aap Hi Ho Nazaar-Soze Parde Mein Munh Chuppaye Kyon? Dashne-e-Gamaz Jaan-Sitan Naavke-Naaz Bepanah Tera Hi Akse-Rukh Sahi, Saame Tere Aaye Kyon? Kaide-Hayat-O-Band-e-Gam, Asl Mein Dono Ek Hain Maut Se Pehlre Aadmi Gum Se Nijaat Paye Kyon? Husn Aur Us Pe Husn-e-Zun Reh Gayee Bulhavas Ki Sharm Apne Pe Etmad Hai, Gair Ko Aazmaye Kyon? Van Veh Garure-Izz-o-Naaz Yan Yeh Hijabe-Paase-Vazan Raah Mein Hum Milen Kahan Bazm Mein Veh Bulaye Kyon? Han Voh Nahin Khuda Parasat Jaao Veh Bewafa Sahi Jisko Ho Dino-Dil Aziz Uski Gali Mein Jaye Kyon? Ghalib-e-Khast Ke Bagair Kaunse Kaam Band Hain? Roeeye Zar-Zar Kaya? Keejiye Haye-Haye Kyon?
Very great urdu poet my fav
Wow favourite poet great poem
My most favourite poet of Urdu language...his horizon is so wide to express every emotion of human being with its full nuances...
Yeah! Genius! The maestro of urdu poetry!
He was a true genius. Great poem from a great poet. This poem is only a tiny example of his greatness. Some of his other poems had been a puzzle for their readers because they could not touch the arena of Ghalib's wisdom. He was one of the most typical poets of the world. I salute his genius.
